Great views along the ridge. Quick steep climb at first but rewarded quickly at top.

First part of trail is very steep. Columbines grappling on impossible ledges right now. There was an assortment of wildlife...you end up on the lone pine trail on the other side of 77.

Overall the trail had absolutely beautiful views. The reason I'm giving it three stars is the fact that you really have to be careful on this trail especially since some of the trails are badly eroded and right near the edge of the cliff. I understand some people tagged this hike as kid friendly, but I wouldn't recommend it. That being said, we took the blue trail and after the first 10 minutes (which is a fairly steep incline) you'll be overlooking Guilford. There's a few other views but then after that it's mostly wood area. The parking lot is also fairly small, so we had to park off to the side of the road which is very busy. There is a old cemetery at the beginning of the blue orange trail that was neat and if you go further down the blue orange trail there is a beaver damn.

Great for an early morning hike to watch the sunrise, the view is one of the best for the moderate effort put forth.

Great trail! A little confusing when I came out to the road and I was grateful for the app but otherwise well marked. Wear decent shoes since the terrain varies and get ready to enjoy a variety of different scenes. So much fun!
